Looks like 2017 is shaping up to be a very busy time for the club with respects to public service events. Today I received a partial list of events for the first part of 2017 from our Public Service Committee Chair Patrick.
We have been requested to assist with the following events so far this year:
- Hypothermic Half Marathon #1 – Feb 12
- Hypothermic Half Marathon #2 – Feb 26
- St. Patrick’s Day run – March 12
- Gorilla Run – May 13
- Transplant Trot – May 20
- Chapman’s Ice Cream Run – July 23
These events are a great way to get out and play radio in the great outdoors, and assist local charities with some fundraising as they receive part of the entry fees. We have a great group of regulars who volunteer for most events, but there is always room for new volunteers as well. I encourage you to take a look at the above list and let Patrick know if you can help out. If you haven’t done an event before don’t be shy. We will help you along the way – usually by pairing you up with someone who has some experience. If you don’t have gear we can have some we can lend out as well.
If you can help out with any of the above events please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let Patrick know which events you can help with.
